Patriots Signing Former Raiders Safety Obi Melifonwu To Bolster Secondary

After being released from waivers a few weeks ago, the former second-round pick of the Oakland Raiders, Obi Melifonwu, has chose to sign with the New England Patriots.

Melifonwu was released by Oakland on October 23 after being waived/injured two months earlier and going unclaimed around the league.

After clearing waivers, Melifonwu reverted to injured reserve, where he remained until the Raiders released him October 23. Since being let go, Melifonwu has taken a number of team visits, including one to New England on October 26.

Twenty-six of Melifonwu's 34 career defensive snaps came in the Raiders' 33-8 loss to the Patriots in Mexico City last season.

Melifonwu played just five games for the Raiders as a rookie. The 24-year-old also played 42 special teams snaps over his five appearances and has experience at both safety and cornerback. Once healthy, the team waived him, and he was free to sign with any team.

Entering the 2017 draft, Melifonwu was touted as an athletic freak who started all four years in college.
